    Hey guys just need a little help here, whenever i'm at my friends house and his house is pretty much a dead zone for signal my Inc. seems to restart of turn off and turn right back on. It only happens at his house and i was wondering if it was because of an option to turn off in low signal areas to save battery.
    Thoughts?:)

    Don't know if you've seen this post. But to answer your question, I am unsure.

    Definitely not an option. That's like saying to save gas at a stop sign (yes sign.. not light) you're gonna turn your car off.
    Your phone rebooting uses more battery than normal operation. I remember people having this problem around launch time but not sure if there's a fix. Maybe time to get a replacement and see if that helps. I've been in no/low signal areas and never had a problem

    Its not a big deal cause it restarts in a second its just a little bit annoying. And it only happens in one spot.

    I think the OP is talking about the rebooting thing. Happens to me too - actually more with my replacement Inc than with the original.

    ahh, thought he was asking" how to " not "why does it"

    I am in a very low sig area at home, 100+db is normal unless I go outside then I can get 95 ish. But phone has never rebooted, only clipped some words never dropped call, so I wasn't looking at it from that view.
    But it is a serious bat drain.
